'It's hard to find like-minded partners': The top challenges facing self-employed physicians

Medscape surveyed 744 self-employed physicians for its 2022 "Self-employed Physicians Report" on their experiences.

Here are five quotes from anonymous self-employed physicians on the greatest challenges they face:

"My income is less than half the national average despite my working more hours. Still, I am pleased with my patient outcomes and staff morales."

"I am still working mightily to train my patients that I am a wife and mother as well as their family physician, so they will be more mindful of my time and other responsibilities."

"Avoiding government and company insurance rules, mandates, and authorizations for treatments and procedures."

"I cannot recruit new doctors when I have to compete with the university groups."

"It's hard to find like-minded partners to keep the office operation running smoothly."
